Pros and cons American Hustle'

Russell's latest film one of 2013's best

Here at year's end is often where we find the films designed to elicit awards-season attention. Sometimes, those films more than earn those impending nominations. Other times, they don't quite measure up in terms of being 'prestige' pictures.

Kibbles and Picks Week 16

The NFL season continues to slip away, and with it my chances to prove my football picking superiority. Another week, another tie Stella and I both went 9-7 in Week 15.

I looked good early; the 49ers and Bills did right by me, with only Stella's improbable selection of the Peterson-less Vikings marring things. And when the Cardinals pulled out their overtime win against the Titans, things were looking good for me to make a move and when the Cowboys leapt out to their massive first-half lead against the Packers, I dared to dream of a massive swing this week. I may have even said as much to Stella as the second half got underway.

Zebra hour

CLEVELAND, Tenn. - The black-and-white-striped animal that's been spotted at different places around a Tennessee town isn't a funny-looking horse.

Nope, there's a zebra loose in East Tennessee.

Celebrity Slam - December 17th, 2013

Somebody's watching you

The best stories are the ones that fly out of left field and drop some unexpected lunacy in our laps. And when they come from an unexpected source as well? That's double our pleasure. You can only hear so many stories about Biebers and Kardashians before you become a little desensitized.

Going Bowling 2013

A casual fan predicts all 35 bowl games

The college football regular season has come to a conclusion. It's all about the bowl games now 35 of them in all. That means 70 different teams are looking to end their season with a victory. I tried to predict them all last year with some success.

Second installment of 'The Hobbit' better than the first

I've discussed the dangers of 'Middle Movie Syndrome' or MMS before. As film studios increasingly take it upon themselves to trot out planned trilogies, we too often see second films that spend most of their time recapping the previous film and setting up the subsequent one, leaving these middle movies as little more than placeholders, filled with recycled exposition and frequent foreshadowing.

Kibbles and Picks Week 15

Well, that's another decent week all for naught; I went 10-6, but so did Stella. One more week gone from the season and my deficit remains an increasingly-daunting six games. Three weeks in total left to catch her 48 picks left to be made.

I have to be honest I'm not overly optimistic about my chances.

MLB hellos and goodbyes

Comings and goings in Boston and the Bronx

Traditionally, baseball's winter meetings have been the hottest of hotbeds when it comes to free agent signings and re-signings. It's the time when all the general managers get together along with other team personnel and player agents to hammer out the contracts that decide which players move on and which ones stick around.

This year, however, some teams have decided not to wait around.
